Bjersig Torrsen is venture-captain of the Pathfinder lodge in Kalsgard's Iceferry district, in the western Lands of the Linnorm Kings. As a half-orc who is unable to hear, he relies on his howling husky dog Mahki to serve as his ears and supplements his speech with Pathfinder hand signals.
Torrsen is a tall half-orc man with black hair tied back into a ponytail and a beard braided to three points. His dog Mahki is a black and white husky who wears a harness featuring the Pathfinder Society's symbol.
Torrsen has been deaf since birth and was raised orally; despite his lack of hearing, he speaks clearly and can read lips expertly. He incorporates his deafness into his life and does not view it as a disability.
